MIZO is a bag crafting workshop that was founded by Edgars Biberis in 2015 based in Riga.

"MIZO is my joy of heart. I can't explain it, but when things fall in the right places, you get a feeling that you have found something that you are destined to do. There is a lot for me to learn and achieve, but I'm certainly moving in the right direction."

It all started back in 2015 with the "Positivus Festival" where I sold t-shirts. Festival ended, and so did the t-shirt business. Somehow it evolved into backpacks, and now there is a range of them, crafted in Riga and worn worldwide.

Simplicity, minimalism, and sustainability are the values that drive us every day. We do produce simple products with character.

The success formula is simple. Find what you love and do it restlessly, with the best intentions and from the true spirit of the heart.
